The problem with letting everyone move their own files to whatever section they felt they should go would be that you would have, for example, more stuff like this in Feature Films:
http://www.archive.org/details/Microfisica_Remix
I'm not putting this film down or saying it's good or bad, but it belongs in another section. I saw that there are a few foreign films sections and this is more likely to belong in one of them than here. Also, have you tried looking for feature films using a keyword search, or typing "feature films" in the search bar? You get a listing for all kinds of stuff, most of which doesn't qualify as a feature film. The mess we would have would be worse than the mess we've got now. No, we need to have a moderator, because a library this big needs structure and organization. We had it once here and I'm hoping we'll have it again soon.

Of course you're right, it would still need monitoring. I admit, it was mainly the "Classic TV" section I had in mind. I do think that, at least for that section, it would be easier to REmove the few that don't belong there.

Yes, it should be easy, but, again, staff are the guys that have to do it, so it puts us right back to the same rut.
